Please join the Faculty Senate and the Professional Development Committee in recognizing our Faculty of the Month for March 2017. She is the one who sends the timely and informative emails about UFO issues when she is not teaching her History classes. You've probably already guessed whom the Faculty of the Month honoree is.

Yes, it's Heather McCarty. In her decade at Ohlone, Heather has served on a wide variety of committees--Tech, Distance Ed, Sustainability, UFO, various Faculty Senate subcommittees, and many search committees. On her selection as March's Faculty of the Month, Heather says that while she is flattered, she thinks "this title belongs to us all. My accomplishments at Ohlone are not solitary achievements but rather collaborative endeavors." She continues, "I am always impressed by the quality of our faculty. I love the people I work with, and it is my pleasure to participate in the community college mission. Our work is so meaningful."

When she is away from Ohlone, Heather spends as much time as she can with her family. She is focused on teaching her daughter about the importance of civic engagement. They will be participating in the Day Without Women this Wednesday, March 8, 2017 and the March for Science on Earth Day. Heather also volunteers in researching swing districts for Swing Left and she is looking forward this summer to working in California's Central Valley and Nevada. She and her daughter will be canvassing both their own local swing district (CA District 10) as well as Nevada's 4th Congressional District with her extended family.

Congratulations, Heather! You are one of Ohlone's best!
